ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the Anvik River in the Yukon Territory. The river begins in Nulato Hills and flows southerly for 141 miles, joining the Yukon River 1.5 miles below the village of Anvik. It flows through alpine tundra and forested hills as it winds its way down to the Yukon. The Anvik River Valley and the Middle Yukon Region was occupied by Ingalik Athapaskans for centuries. The river supplied the people with a variety of wild game, fish, berries and other plants. The Russians were the first European that penetrated the Middle Yukon Region.
